Hello my lovelies :) I am officially back from my holidays and it's been such a blast. The sun, the food, the Sephora - ah Spain I'll be back and soon :) Today I'd like to share with you the look I created using my new favourite - Jeffree Star Beauty Killer palette (again thanks to my lovely Monica for the American beauty goods - check out our hauls here). This is the only palette I took with me abroad as it really covers all the bases. Daytime makeup? Check. Evening glamour? Check. Crazy colours? Check. As my birthday is coming up, I wanted to create not only an evening look but also something fun and full of colours. And this happened...
Nivea Post Shave Balm as a primer
L'Oreal True Match Foundation in Rose Ivory
Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer to correct and for reverse conturing
Nars Orgasm blusher
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Pearl to highlight
Anastasia Beverly Hills DipBrow Pomade in Taupe for the arch
Benefit Gimme Brow for the brow fronts
Too Faced Melted Liquified Lipstick in Melted Fuchsia for colour
Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil as a gloss
MAC Paint Pot in Painterly as a primer
Jeffrey Star Beauty Killer Palette (click here for review + swatches)
NYX Jumbo Pencil in Milk
Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
Red Cherry Lashes (total and utter fail - they look terrible on pictures - sorry about that ladies!!!)
I started off by setting the primer with China White which is a super pigmented off white matte. For my "crease" (fake crease for hooded eyes - area above your natural crease which is covered by the hood of the eyes) I used Courtney on a fluffy blending brush and created the transition for the rest of the shades. I started off with Vanity in the outer corner to create the depth to the eye. I blended it towards the crease. I added the colour couple of times and blended it, all with fluffy brush as these shadows are pigmented as hell! I added a little of Black Rainbow in the very outer corners to intensify the effect. For the mid lid I applied Expensive which is such a beautiful blue/green/turquoise shade with some glitter to it. I used a flat synthetic brush but you can intensify it even further by applying it with your finger or even wet. I blended the shade into the charcoal Vanity. For the inner corners I used the superb gold Rich Bitch, blended it into Expensive and added a bit of Princess in the very inner corners for highlight.
For the bottom lid I used Vanity all over with a small fluffy blending brush and just a tad of Black Rainbow in the very outer corners. Again I added a little of Rich Bitch to the inner corners to close the bottom& top lid.
I lined my waterline with NYX Milk and applied the extreme matte pink Star Power on top (you didn't really think I'd skip the pink now did you? lol)
For my mascara I used my trusty favourite Urban Decay Perversion and finished the look with some lashes. These are the worst lashes I've ever used and obviously not great looking unless you go with a strong liner on the top lid. I apologise for how these look in the photos :(
I hope you enjoy the finished look. If you plan on recreating it, please tag me in your photos on Instagram, Twitter and all over and use my hashtag #idorottka :) I always look forward to your snaps so don't forget to follow me on Snapchat <3 Just search: i.dorottka
